Alert primary task assignee when all subtasks have been completed

Our company has a few templates with an excess of subtasks assigned to multiple people, and not everyone is as responsive to them as they could be. As the primary task assignee, it’s frustrating for me to have to constantly check in on the task to see if the subtasks have been completed before I can mark the parent task complete. (I hate seeing those red past due dates on my tasks page!) Is there any way to set an alert for when all subtasks are complete?

Hi @Megan_Christopher

Simply have the subs blocking the parent via dependencies and you will get a notification when no other tasks are blocking.

It’s a bit of a visual mess when you’ve got 23 subtasks, but thank you for the suggestion. :slight_smile:

Hi @Megan_Christopher, welcome to the Asana Community Forum :wave:

Thanks for providing this feedback!

While this feature isn’t available right now, hopefully it’s something our Product team can implement in the future.

I’ll keep you posted and let you know if we have any updates :slight_smile:

You could also use a custom field in combination with a custom rule.
Or you could assign the Sub Task to the project, then you will see the status in the list or board view without having to click through them
